Alternative Treatment for TNBC

This is the first community I have found where there are members who opted not to take chemo. Chemo or no chemo is a personal choice. I had a double mastectomy 6 mths ago and I have been taking Meriva curcumin, exercising and making smoothies. Also, I am trying to eat a Mediterranean diet. My tumor was 1.5cm and no mets. It is still early, however, I will keep you posted. This is a scary and challenging journal; however, tneg is not a death sentence. Patricia Prijatel wrote a book, Surviving Triple Negative Breast Cancer. She highlights women who went the traditional and non-traditional treatment routes. Her blog "Positives About Negative" is a wonderful source of information.

So glad to meet you clifford1! I, too was diagnosed with triple negative and I too did not do chemo. It has been 3.5 years now and am doing fine. I decided to follow a more natural approach and engaged a naturopathic oncologist to direct my program. I am a believe in vitamin c infusions for cancer level. I had micromets in one lymph node. At one point the surgeon wanted to do a mastectomy but instead I opted for another surgery and he couldn't find any more cancer. I had 2 lumps the second one with cancer cells at the margin. You must exercise and mind/body connections is key in my opinion. Would love to correspond with you since I have not been able to find many people who have not done chemo. I did do integrative with radiation and had tremendous results and zero side effects. In fact my whole treatment I have zero side effects. There is hope and it can be done!

Hello utahbunny, Your progress is GREAT news. I am encouraged by your progress. I would love to correspond with you also. What is the best way to email each other? I do not want to post my email address on the forum. I would love to get more information about your naturopath doctor.

I am not sure either as how to give you my email address without posting it for everyone. I did send a message to the contact people here to see what can be done. Will see what they say if anything. Triple negative is treatable and is not the death sentence by any means. The idea with natural is building up the immune system. Critical. Also exercising is very important. the key is finding a professional who is natural and specializes in cancer. My finding was a very experienced naturopathic oncologist located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Will see what they say about the email. Beta glucans, antioxidants, mushroom extracts are your friends. Sugar is not your friend.

Clifford1-thiere are others that have alternative groups where you can do email back and forth and messages. You might want to look at inspire and they have an alternative group that I am involved in. Hope all is well with you and remember that there are people who are diagnosed with TNBC and are doing very well. And some of those people did not do chemo. It is possible and in my mind a healthier approach to this. Good luck and hope to hear from you soon.

Utahbunny,

I live in Scottsdale AZ and both my sister and I have breast cancer. My sister has TNBC but lives in the east coast. I'd love to find out who your naturopathic oncologist is. Is it Dr. Ruben of Naturopathic Specialist?

Yes it is and I highly recommend him. I am getting close to my 5 year mark and no side effects and my immune system has never been better thanks to him. I feel he really cares about his patients and is very kind. Let me know if you do see him. His staff is also excellent
